The scholarships have a wide variety of criteria, so any student planning to attend college should consider applying. To find the portal link, search the Naviance scholarship database for “Dollars for Scholars”. Be sure to read ALL application instructions before you begin. The portal closes on March 15th.


Any senior who has a college acceptance, military enlistment, full-time job offer or other plan for after graduation can share their good news through the Google Form posted in your ‘Class of 2024’ Classroom. These announcements will be featured on the television screens outside School Counseling and in the Main Lobby and will also be featured in the next month’s Counseling and Career Connection newsletter. You may fill the form out multiple times as new acceptances and opportunities come in.
